2:05 pm
dorothy and my favorite part here, you did it and she says yes, yes. if that's how you will remember your grandma, my grandma went out flying in a motorized parachute giving a thumbs up to the camera, awesome. the driver of the truck in this video is lucky to be alive. this happened in argentina. you notice that there is a train coming by and all of the traffic is stopped. notice on the lower left of the screen a truck is going to drive up as the train is going by. it is waiting. he is thinking i'm clear. >> oh, boy. oh, no. >> not clear. as soon as the train hit him, the front of the car burst into flames. the driver only suffered minor injuries, no one else was hurt. apparently this driver thought he was safe because that one train had passed. he couldn't see coming from the other direction hidden by the other train of the another train. >> the indicator is the other car on the other side of the tracks. you see that car not moving. you have to think something else
2:06 pm
may be coming. >> witnesses that saw the event say it was 100% negligence on the side of the driver. there had to be lights or something going off letting him know it is not okay to go. >> you know that first train wasn't that far gone at all. just a little patience, let it get down there. >> i want to be clear the coast is clear when a train goes by. >> train versus car, train wins every time. >> every time. >> the great rtm ipad mini give away is coming up in a bit. >> friday's buzz word and don't forget you have to be 18 or older to enter. >> stick with us for friday's buzz word. >> good luck, everybody. >> i showed you this video of the raging bull, remember, we found more footage with more angles and it shows you just how terrifying this ordeal really was.

>> hands up, hands up. >> he is trying to undo that harness around the bull and grabbing him by the tail right where the legs are, too. >> as the cowboys are starting to get on top of the bull, screaming at each other and shouting instructions. look at this angle from afar. look at how people are scrambling to get out of the way while the cowboys jump to where the bull is. >> that angle shows you just how huge and powerful that bull is. they look like little specs of color. >> you see them opening the three doors that lead to the car part where they did lass owe and control him. it seems like there were no

2:11 pm
olympic sport. >> look at how they have the track covered. i can only imagine in case you fall off or fly off or get out of shape you don't go flying off the chute. he experiences up to five gs of sen trif gull force and says the pros average about 70 miles an hour and cop out about 80 miles an hour. essentially he is going slow here. >> and no protection except that little helmet. >> if he wrecks, the first thing that will hit is his face. scary and another unique view, a close up encounter with a grizzly bear up in alaska. chet thomas works at a fish hatchery and he sees bears all the time and sometimes 15 or more. he wanted a close up shot and put the camera near a path where the bears walk by and to his surprise he got these shocks. that is a bear claw you can't eat. now you know what it would feel like to be chewed up by a grizzly bear. look at the teeth.
2:12 pm
>> go pro survived this because we are watching the footage. >> rolls it around in his mouth and you see the camera and all full of bear saliva and stuff. >> and now you know how salmon feel. only going to say before you see this, nick, this is my gift to you. >> he is going to jump on. >> what you got are guys in an apartment and they see something going on in the apartment complex across the alley. they see a guy standing one floor up somewhere on this building and it looks like he is about to jump, like he is going to do something parkour. >> oh. >> don't do it. don't do it. >> trying to jump to the sun roof? >> let's see. >> do it, do it, do it. >> oh, boy. >> what was he trying to do? >> what the -- >> why did he fall like that? >> i don't think he was trying
2:13 pm
to climb in the sun roof. the sun roof is closed. you can tell by his foot it is not going down. >> he didn't even jump. it is like his feet were tacked to the roof there. it is like he was talking to the guy and like what did you say, i can't hear you, what, what, and leans over and fell. now you have a dented car and a smashed face. and a dent in your pride. >> why did he fall like that? >> in the slowest video yet, the slow-mo guys show us 18,000 frames per second. they are using the amazing fant only camera and they blow a bubble and use a stick to burst it. >> you know what is cool, you can see the bubble react to the air that the stick is pushing towards the bubble. that's crazy. >> and of course when the stick hits it, it breaks but you see the trajectory.
2:14 pm
it goes. it moves up. >> isn't it crazy? >> like a jelly fish or something. >> i like when you see the end of the top. you actually see all the little specks of water and the particles of water. this is cool. they blew a bubble and then tossed a bullet through it to see if gravity was faster than the speed at which the bubble pops. >> it popped before it ever got to the bottom. >> if i own a weird night club, i would have a bunch of videos playing of their stuff in slow motion in the background because people would -- >> that would be cool. mesmerized. >> it is a video of the baby whale that is putting a big smile on the web. >> look at that. these people are putting their hand in this giant mammal's mouth. >> oh, they're rubbing like his teeth. >> on the next "right this minute." still to come, amazing video of the best female rock climber in the world. >> how do you become the world's
